The tablet market is usually flooded by Apple and Microsoft fanatics. While Apple and Microsoft products have a very solid reputation insofar as quality and functionality is concerned, it is also undeniable that their products also happen to be extremely expensive.
On the other hand, price may not be the issue for others, but just a matter of personal distaste for Apple products. If you’re looking for an alternative to Microsoft and Apple tablets, we’ve got you covered because we’ve reviewed two of the best Samsung tablets in 2017 (Thanks to AuthorityAdviser for the information).
Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2
The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 runs on Android 4.4 and with a Samsung Exynos 5420 clocking at 1.90 GHz, a built in memory with 64 GB at most (with options from 32 and 64 GB with included memory card slot) and with a max screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 and a display using TFT LCD. Having a much larger screen which measures 12.2 inch. The LTE version of this tablet runs on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC. This tablets opt for Micro-USB 3.0 which means that it transfer data faster.
The tablet will do well in delivering presentations due to its large screen. The display screen is impressive which may be perfect for your document creation, reading and editing. Using the S Pen will allow you to use the full functionality of the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro. It’s also great for spec-demanding games. The camera has 8MP. With its large screen, it is apt for running multiple apps at the same time.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 dauntingly expensive without the class as compared to its top rivals in the market. However it did a good job in the telling the world that we need a super-sized tablet to address our needs in terms of productivity while favouring the Android OS.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1
Last but not the least, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A. Samsung designed an all-powerful Android tablet for consumers who’s on a tight budget. A great alternative to the Surface Pro 4.
Having the processor of Exynos 7870 clocking at 1.6 GHz Octa-Core, 2GB RAM, a built-in 16GB memory and a max resolution 1200 x 1920 pixels and a 224 ppi. The dimensions of this tablet 10.01 x 6.11 x 0.32 inches and weighing at 525 grams. The rear camera is pretty decent having at 8MP in the rear and a 2MP front facing.
What we like about using this tablet is the large and attractive display of the tablet. The tablet has a 16:10 ratio and a decent ppi which makes it best while streaming movies or for file reading for a long time. While using it outside, we have no trouble using even there’s direct sunlight focused. The tablet can easily ward it off. While using it, we have no trouble regarding battery issues. However, there are things that the manufacturer compromised to keep the product at a low price. The usable of the built memory is only 10.5 GB. The camera is a little disappointing. The speakers are pretty good as long you won’t change it to landscape mode.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is a good college tablet with a price not that low or not that high. A good fit for you if you’re searching a tablet that is not too expensive or to cheap and can live the expectations considering the price.
If you’re for team Samsung, these two tablets offer the best features and specs, which arguably could rival the Ipad Mini or the Microsoft Pro 4. Both of these Samsung products are a great alternative to other insanely expensive high-end tablets.
